Claves (pronounced klah-veys) are a traditional rhythm instrument rooted in Latin music. Just clack them together for a lively sound!
How to play: Hold one clave loosely laid on top of the palm within curled fingers while you strike firmly with the other at a right angle.
In Latin music, claves are used to keep the band in time and are often played on the off beats or between notes.
Includes a pair of claves, instructions for playing various rhythmic patterns, and a history of the instrument.
